5.0 out of 5 stars compelling and fascinating, 12 Mar. 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Arrival City: How the Largest Migration in History is Reshaping Our World (Hardcover)
A fascinating book on a hugely important and unreported subject. The process that Saunders describes is going to determine the history of the 21st century to a far greater extent than most of what politicians do and the media reports on.

It's also an exceptionally well crafted non-fiction book: a highly readable mix of compelling case histories and big ideas. I'm not a specialist; this is the kind of subject that normally engages me for the length of a feature article at most, but the information and insights are paid out expertly for a thoroughly satisfying read.
